Tziporah Malkah May Fight Drink-Driving Charges
Ex-model and actress Tziporah Malkah, previously known as Kate Fischer, will spend the next week deciding whether to fight drink-driving charges.
The 44-year-old, who recently appeared on reality TV show I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!, is accused of driving while intoxicated at Toorak in Melbourne's inner-east on January 3.
It's also alleged she refused a breath test after an accident, drove carelessly, reversed in an unsafe manner, and stopped on a nature strip.
But Malkah claims police officers were "bullies" that night.
She appeared in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Wednesday over seven charges, and indicated she may contest them.
The court was told she was "extremely unhappy" with the way police acted on the night of the allegations.
"Vic Pol are bullies," she told reporters as she left, without providing details of what happened.
The former pin-up model and actress has featured on the cover of Vogue four times and was engaged to billionaire James Packer in the 1990s.
Malkah's case was adjourned to December 15 while she considers her options and reviews evidence, including video footage taken by another driver.
